What Causes Acne on Face?

The visual defect of acne on the face is unfortunately a common problem for many people. Let's look at what causes acne and how to deal with it.
The main cause of acne is the excessive production of sebum, which clogs the pores of the skin.
The most common adult acne causes:

  1. Increased level of androgens, the male sex hormones, which cause the skin to become 'greasy' and produce large amounts of sebum, thereby triggering acne.
  2. Insulin resistance and polycystic ovarian syndrome - these conditions are also associated with increased androgen levels.
  3. Changes in the hormonal background. One of the main criteria for reproductive dysfunction is an irregular cycle. If you have an irregular cycle and rashes, you should see a gynecological endocrinologist.
  4. Often acne is caused by gastrointestinal diseases, conditions characterized by constipation, and conditions associated with gallbladder and liver disorders. In such cases, the rash is predominantly localized to the chest, neck, and cheeks.
  5. An excess of omega-6 fatty acids in the diet also aggravates skin inflammation. Foods rich in omega-6 fatty acids primarily include sunflower, peanut and soybean oils. Margarine is particularly dangerous, because it often causes hyperfunction of the sebaceous glands and more.
  6. Vitamin deficiencies, such as vitamins A and E, zinc and omega-3 fatty acids. In pustular skin lesions, B vitamins.
  7. Stress leads to the production of cortisol (stress hormone), which triggers an increased production of sebum.
  8. Nutrition, as it directly affects gastrointestinal and gallbladder diseases, as well as hormonal disorders related, to insulin resistance. Acne caused by sugar is the result of too many simple carbohydrates and refined foods in your diet. They cause a spike in insulin, which is a major trigger not only for rashes but also for the conditions described above.
  9. Intolerance, allergy to certain foods (most often dairy products and gluten). Does the pill cause acne? If you have started taking any medication or vitamins and you notice a rash after taking them, you should consult your doctor about this side effect.
We have dealt with what causes acne. Now let's look at how to help yourself.
Nutrition in terms of skin quality is not just about rashes, but also about the elasticity and beauty of our skin. In medicine, there is the term "sugar face". It is a dehydrated, wrinkled face with elements of rashes. It is a consequence of glycation. Sugar binds collagen and elastin fibers, works as a glue for our blood vessels and provokes inflammatory changes.

The first step to beautiful skin: reduce foods with so-called fast sugars (fast carbohydrates) in your diet. Foods that cause acne: glucose, fructose, sucrose, lactose. They trigger glycation processes. Remember that these are sauces, juices and all foods containing any sugars. 70% of food now contains them. Try to avoid fast food, fatty and fast foods, and foods with monosodium glutamate in their composition.

Does chocolate cause acne? - yes!

Does milk cause acne? - yes!

Should you reduce the amount of gluten in your diet if you get a rash? - yes!

This rule is not mandatory. But if you already show signs of acne, you will have to say goodbye to these products for at least 3 months.

Saturate your diet with foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids and minimize foods high in omega-6 fatty acids. Also, consume foods that are best for the beauty of our skin: fresh vegetables, fiber-rich foods, MCT oil, protein products (animal and vegetable), Brazil nuts, and flax seeds. Use from 1 to 3 sachets of TASLIM to normalize fiber content.

This problem necessarily requires a comprehensive approach. But if you start applying the recommendations given in this article and the other information blocks on our website, combined with a dermatologist's consultation and the use of our products, clear skin will become your friend, not your dream.
